Curriculum Research & Development

The Echo Foundation seeks 2 – 3 2019 summer Student Interns who will create the annual curriculum to be used by hundreds of teachers and thousands of students across the region and beyond. This year’s focus is on international human rights and the work of Congolese Dr. Denis Mukwege, 2018 Nobel Prize in Peace. (Check out past curricula at www.echofoundation.org).

Echo Student Interns play a critical role in the development and implementation of our educational programs. In a small, dynamic environment, interns research, create and produce our vital initiatives that advance the cause of humanity while gaining valuable research and product development experience.
